Fun zoo. They have now a cute baby gorilla and a baby giraffe. Plenty of exhibits to keep your family busy for a couple of hours. Parking is easy but costs.

Easy to get to by public transport from Seattle downtown. Has tons of animal exhibits, including the requisite animal feedings. The exhibits seemed well-maintained and animals had lots of space to roam. Nice sized zoo, overall.

This is a beautiful zoo with nice habitats for the animals. A great place that you can easily spend all day at. If you are so inclined there are lots of places to picnic or purchase food.

We enjoyed the light display recently one evening. The number of lighted decorations was amazing, as was the beauty of them! It was well worth the visit! We arrived when it opened, right around 1730. It was very crowded, even on a weeknight, to get...More
